This Crescent Beach Backed By Cliffs Is Our New Favorite Hawaii Destination
The Hawaiian Islands are home to 750 miles of stunning coastline — putting the island state behind only Alaska, Florida, and California in terms of coastline length. And while we love the rugged sea cliffs found across the islands — including Kauai’s Na Pali Coast and Molokai — the beaches are what truly matters. From the black sand beaches on the Big Island and Maui’s magnificent red sand beach to pristine white sand beaches and turquoise waters on Oahu and Kauai, Hawaii is home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in the country — and perhaps even the world. But this stunning crescent-shaped stretch of sand backed by lush, verdant cliffs along Maui’s southern coast might just be the best in the Aloha State. Ready to dive in?
